"So far so good"4.0 starson by VIRchitect
Pros: Good reception, Good battery life,
Cons: Weird ear position when open, tends to freeze randomly
Summary: I decided to write this to return the favor for the many that have helped me out on this site in such for a new phone. Ok i've had this phone for about 2 weeks and so far I have very little complaints. First off i'm going to start with the cons, most of which have simple solutions: First when the phone is open it is kinda hard to talk on it because of the funny ear position. Solution, just talk on it when its closed. You can set the phone to where it won't hang up when you close it. Next, camera is not great in low light conditions. Solution, turn on a light or buy a real camera, which is what i'm going to do. This is a phone after all. Next, no dedicated mp3 music button. On my lg 8300 i would press a the play button and my music will play. No such button on here. Solution, assign one of the shortcut keys to open the music menu. Its not as convenient but only a couple more buttons to push. Next the menu. The menu kinda sucks, and it take too long to find things, but its not the phones fault. You can thank Verizon for that one. Next, the phone tends to freeze a little. It may just have a slow processor.
Now phone the Pros.
It looks cool. I have yet to see another phone that opens like it. Next, The battery life. i have gone 2 days without charging the phone and the battery meter only went down 2 bars. Now thats with normal use and without playing music. Well maybe a song or two. Next, the video recorder. I have yet to find its limits (in terms of video length). I've gone as long as 4 minutes. Not at all like the 30 seconds of the other phones.
Overall I am very pleased with the phone and would recommend it. I have no comment on the tv viewing because honestly I don't want to pay that much for the service. I Hope this helped someone out
